Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh ohh

I don't understand your thinking
Thought we were happy, guess I was mistaken
Gave you all my love and my attention,
Say you dont want me, cuz something is missing
Gave you all you wanted and you know it's true
All that I was doin' it meant nothing to you
And if I dogged you out, we'd probably be cool
But I was good to you, so good

Don't you want a guy that's real nice
That'll spend all his dough and his time
But then you change your mind and want a thug guy
That won't act right
It doesn't pay to be the good guy
You callin' me late nights
Tellin' me how he won't act right
Stayin' with him but he makes you cry
Tell me why
Doesn't pay to be the good guy

'Cause Everytime I try to be the good guy
You take me for granted, throw me to the side
Rather have a man that'll tell you lies
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

Why should I be the good guy
And get left for the man that don't treat you right
There's nothing good in being good guys
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

I don't understand your reason
Sayin' you love me, then sayin' you're leavin'
The situation here is really changin'
Don't wanna fall in love cuz you play me (oh)
You gotta be kiddin' me (no)
Been tryin' to get rid of me
I did more for you than any brother would do
I was good to you, so good

Don't you want a guy that's real nice
That'll spend all his dough and his time
But then you change your mind and want a thug guy
That won't act right
It doesn't pay to be the good guy
You callin' me late nights
Tellin' me how he won't act right
Stayin' with him but he makes you cry
Tell me why
Doesn't pay to be the good guy

'Cause Everytime I try to be the good guy
You take me for granted, throw me to the side
Rather have a man that'll tell you lies
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

'Cause Everytime I try to be the good guy
You take me for granted, throw me to the side
Rather have a man that'll tell you lies
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

I was good to you (I played the fool)
Played the fool for you
You messed it up for the next girl in my life
I'll never do,
The things I do for you
Our love just wasn't true
I was good to you, so good to you
So good to you
Everytime I try

'Cause Everytime I try to be the good guy
You take me for granted, throw me to the side
Rather have a man that'll tell you lies
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
This song is from the album "Nathan Michael Shawn Wanya".
